Like school in the summertime,


While Russell (above) often put down his petulant friends of Fat Albert and the Gang, it apples today to a talented athlete who is reported to be academically ineligible - and he happens to be named Gary Russell.

The leading candidate to be a big part of the Minnesota Golden Gophers backfield in 2006, Russell rushed for 1,130 yards and a school record of 18 total touchdowns in 2005. He was ineligible for the spring practices due to his courseload and scores.

"hey-bu bubba, wantsa-ba fries with that-ba?"

This leaves the door wide-open for one of my favorite names in college football, Amir Pinnix, to be the main toter of the rock. Pinnix will likely share duties with JUCO Brylee Callender, just like every other year under Coach Glen Mason's watch.

Neither Mushmouth nor The Brown Hornet were available for comment. Rudy was quoted as saying "you are like an empty garbage can - no trash!"
